Manufacturing energy management and efficiency

Efficient ManufacturingWhat We Do

We continue to work with a diverse number of manufacturers; from crisps, to beer, to poultry, to 'Henry the vacuum cleaner' and now even film productions. The common denominator for our clients has been ‘to find an energy partner who can innovate, deliver results, and remain transparent and ethical in their approach’. Or as the energy manager at Numatic put’s it (Henry the Vacuum cleaner manufacturer).. A company willing to sell them ‘exactly what they need & just what they needed’.

With the electricity market reforming your costs of production per unit are exposed to price rises, developing a strategy around not only buying your energy at the optimum points during the year (using the right techniques) but also reducing consumption will be essential over the next decade.

Achieving lowest cost

We work with a number of UK manufacturers who need to purchase everything that they buy at lowest cost; there is a lot of pressure on British Manufacturing and this has been further heightened by the changing political landscape and uncertainty around exports alongside cost-push inflationary pressure for imports.

We want to do everything we can to support British Manufacturing and for us it doesn't matter what you are producing when it comes to energy the challenges are very much the same

You need to make the most of the site that you operate at and this means:

  • Extracting any subsidies and support for on-site generation
  • Creating operational efficiency along your production line
  • Switching away from fuels exposed to price increases and where possible using on site generation rather than importing from the grid
  • Considering ways not only to harvest energy but also to store energy as a key development over the next decade
  • Reducing waste and recycling heat and any other form of by-products where feasible and commercial to do so
  • Ramping up your CSR and where possible in an innovative manner

Alongside all of this you also need to continue running with solutions to energy that continue to robustly get results year-on-year and can be considered 'essentials' or at least essential parts of your energy management strategy

There are a few changes however to how you need to consider your contractual set-ups and we can assist in optimising your set-up with you. It's a practical 2-way dialogue about what you can actually 'nip and tuck' on site and where you can skew demand when it comes to designing the strategy.

Contact us today and we'll try to get along to your site/HQ to see how we can support your challenges and assist your business in achieving it's aims.

With the electricity market reforming, your costs of production per unit are exposed to price rises. Developing a strategy around not only buying your energy at the optimum points during the year but also reducing consumption will be essential until the end of the decade.



  • "Henry is our best known product… it’s been in production for 30 years. Amber Energy where prepared to give me just what I wanted. Not charging me lots of money for things I didn’t need. A pick n mix. The one we choose was just what I wanted and it’s worked extremely really well. There’s enough hand holding for me to feel confident I’m doing the right thing for the company. Every conversation I’ve had right from the beginning has been a positive one. "
